Evenin' all, So, I was driving a group of us down to Cheltenham on Saturday and we stopped at Frankley Services to fill up. After about 10 mins, the car (my missus' Mini, an automatic) started to lose power and a warning light came on the dash. We reached our exit fairly soon and pulled over to give the engine a rest. Long and short of it, the rest of the journey the car lurched, shuddered and stalled every time we slowed for a junction or roundabout. I called out the Mini breakdown guy and he diagnosed something to do with a sensor which he replaced. However, 7 hours later when we went to use the car again, it behaved the same way. As it was now nearly midnight, we limped back to our hotel and called the breakdown guy the next morning; he diagnosed the same fault again so said there must be something wrong with the main computer. He got the car returned to our local Mini dealer and we got a hire car. Now, here's the thing: the Mini dealer's service department did a full diagnostic, better than the breakdown fella could do and as part of the testing drained the fuel out of the tank. They tell me the fuel smelt funny and looked slightly weird ( I'm paraphrasing here) and once they had put clean fuel in and changed the damaged spark plug, the engine was fine. They are telling me that the fuel was contaminated, although they have not tested to see what with but they did confirm I had not accidentally put in diesel. As it was not a manufacturing fault, I have been hit with a repair bill of £342. I contacted Frankley Services and they told me that they have not had any other complaints about the pump I used and that they had served 62 customers some 1700 litres since I used it so they feel they are not to blame. What do I do?!! I want to publicise this somehow so if anyone else had experienced similar but not connected it to Frankley then there would be more evidence. Trading Standards have made a note of it but I am told that they probably won't investigate until they have had about 10 complaints. Apart from the usual NAAFI Bar answers, any ideas of how I can claim my repairs expenses back would be gratefully received.
